CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) –

The Cleveland Cavaliers received their championship rings Tuesday night. The rings tell a story of the team’s journey to an NBA title.

The phrase “WORLD CHAMPIONS” is proudly displayed along the top and bottom. Each letter is framed in diamonds, using a total of 216 diamonds to represent Cleveland’s area code. A one carat diamond sits atop the trophy to represent the team’s first-ever NBA championship.

The Cleveland skyline is on one side of the ring.

The interior of the ring has 7 gems to represent the NBA Finals games and the order they were won. Three white diamonds represent the 3 games the Golden State Warriors won and 4 wine-colored diamonds to represent the Cavs victories.

Also on the inside of the ring: Automatic, work.
